is -- >> the answer is -- >> wait a minute. i have fbi crime statistics that come out of a year late, 2011, 20-plus percent crime drop in the last nine years. real violent crime because more guns means less crime. britain took the guns 15, 16 years ago. tripling of your overall crime. true, we have a higher gun violence level, but overall, muggings, stabbings, deaths. those men raped that woman to india to death with an iron rod 15 feet long. you can't ban the iron rods. the guns, the iron rods, piers, didn't do it. the tyrants did it. hitler took the guns, stalin took the guns, chavez took the guns. and i'm here to tell you, 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms. it doesn't matter how many lemmings you get on the street begging to have the guns taken. we will not relinquish them. do you understand? that why you're going to fail and the establishment knows no matter how much propaganda, the republic will rise again when you try to take our gun. my family was at the core on both sides starting that. because santa ana came to take the guns at gonzalez, texas. piers, don't try what

but remained on the f.b.i.'s radar. he was extradited last week when his name surfaced into an investigation on a suicide bombing attack on the new york subway system that failed to be pulled off. he is the 8th defendant to face charges in brooklyn for the failed subway plot. you may remember one of his alleged coconspirators who pled guilty back in 2010. he and others were communicating with a shado shadowy al-qaida member. they were e-mailing phrases, such as marriage. he was stopped and the plot was foiled. nasir was using the name language as zazi while communicating with this guy in pack sthapb and was part of this kpheur to commit multiple terrorist attacks and that's why the u.s. attorney in the u.s. was able tow prosecute him. that first appearance scheduled about two hours from now. jenna we'll look forward to developments on that case. thank you. jon: a big take down for the f.b.i. to tell you about. federal agents scratching a name off their most wanted list, after this man is arrested on the other side of the world. details on the bust and his alleged crimes coming up. plus, heav
f.b.i. agent levinson who disappeared there in 2007. the "associated press" report the high quality of the images sent anonymously to his family two years ago led to the conclusion. iran denied any involvement. the administration begins a new gun control effort. we will talk about it with the fox all-stars when we come back. living with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis means living with pain. it could also mean living with joint damage. help relieve the pain and stop the damage with humira, adalimumab. for many adults with moderate to severe ra, humira is clinically proven to help relieve pain and stop joi damage. so you can treat more than just the pain. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal events, such as infections, lymphoma, or other types of cancer, have happened. blood, liver and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worseng heart failure have occurred. before starting humira, your doctor should test you for tb. ask your doctor if you live in or have been to a region where certain f
over each of the 166 counts against james holmes. we also heard from an fbi bomb tech, an atf supervisor, who testified about the extent to which holmes booby-trapped his apartment with homemade napalm, propane and gas triggers. in the two months leading up tote shooting holmes purchased 6295 rounds of ammunition as well as tear gas, ballistic gear and handcuffs. on cross-examinations holmes defense attorney asked one of the agents if there was anything in colorado law that prevented someone with mental illness from making any of these purchases and the agent said no, jenna. jenna: there comes up for one of the first times it is coming up in this preliminary hearing. we know the defense will be calling its own witness. tell us about who those people potentially could be and also how does that procedure, a defense calling witnesses in this preliminary hearing, how typical is that? >> that isn't something that usually happens but legal analysts are saying that what they think is happening here is that the defense is using this opportunity in the hearing to start the process of b
of a retired fbi agent who disappeared in iran almost six years ago has released photos of him in captivity. they show him in an orange jump suit holding various signs, one of them read, why you cannot help me. the family spokesman said the photos were received 18 months ago because they haven't seen enough progress in the case. his family says he was working an a private investigator looking into cigarette smuggling when he went missing on a business trip. the fbi has offered a million dollar reward for information leading to his safe return. >>> it is now confirmed that chavez will not be attending his inauguration. tomorrow is the big day but the 58-year-old president has been undergoing cancer treatment in cuba. so he can't take the oath of office in person. that has been raising questions about his legitimacy. the constitution isn't clear on whether the president can be sworn in on another day or who should be in charge in the meantime. the ruling has been issued by the supreme court there. he did leave for a fourth cancer surgery in cuba last month. he has since been battling a severe
control laws, but to strengthen things like databases the fbi uses for background checks or getting states to share more information from criminal and mental health databases or even prosecuting felons who try to buy guns illegally or people who lie on background checks. would you support any of those moves? >> you have to look at each one one by one. a number of them, for example, the mental health issues, for example, i strongly favor, looking at those actions. if they're within the law and it's an appropriate executive order, i think the president has every right to do it. if it's not in current law, he can't do it by executive order and the congress would have to, i think, block him if he attempted to do it by executive order. it depends on exactly what they come up with. what i really encourage is that the vice president before he rushed around doing new things, go to chicago. chicago has very strict gun laws. it is also the deadliest city in america, over 500 people were killed in chicago last year. and i think the vice president ought to ask the question himself, why is it that all
, the fbi conducted a record 2.8 million checks for gun purchases, a record for a single month. in other words, a lot of americans reacted to the horror of that terrible day by rushing out to buy a gun. since that day, and unlike after past shootings, the old debate over gun rights who should buy them and what kind that they can guy has only gotten more intense. vice president joe biden on tuesday will present the president with his task force's recommendation for reducing gun violence. mental health, violent video games and school safety have all been a part of his agenda. he even met with the n.r.a. but the group said it was, quote, disappointed in their discussion. that discussion is stirring passion from dinner tables to talk shows nationwide in ways we haven't seen in a very long time. here's our own piers morgan with a radio host who started a petition to get piers deported over support for gun control. >> the tyrants did it. hitler took the guns. stalin took the guns. castro took the guns. chavez took the guns. 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms. doesn't matt
of a former fbi agent van fishing in iran five years ago. robert levinson disin 2007. family is releasing disturbing new pictures sent from whomever is holding him, we believe. there is a "america's newsroom." i'm bill hemmer. good morning, martha. martha: good to see you. i'm martha maccallum. intelligence officials believe iran is holding him as a bargaining chip essentially, something tehran vehemently denies at this point. the new pictures show a haggard levinson than in earlier pictures. this sign says help me, we must be excruciating for his wife christine. she released the pictures to urge the government to do more and not give up hope. >> diplomatically it takes a long time for each diplomatic request to go through all the channels. i know over the course of all these years that the government and the state department have tried to do that but have been unsuccessful. i feel there needs to be more attention to the case and that's why i'm putting the pictures out and trying to get everyone to, to be reminded that bob is still missing. bill: so will it help? david lee miller live in
report found the u.s. spent more money on immigration enforcement than the fbi, drug enforcement administration, secret service, u.s. marshal service and the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms combined. the migration policy institute says close to $18 billion was spent on immigration last year compared to $14.4 billion for all other principal law enforcement agencies. >>> a mexican restaurant in columbia, south carolina is in hot water over a t-shirt it's selling that says look at this, how to catch an illegal immigrant. and it shows a taco being used as bait. critics say the message behind the shirt that employees wear and sell is racist. >>> the list goes on and on and on. another lashing earning seven nominations and tyler perry is being honored for his work in three films. they're handed out on february 23rd the night before the oscars. >>> take your ipad with you into the pool. can you believe that? that and other cool innovations from the electronics consumer show. >> plus we're already calling this the shot of the year. the story behind that you been believable shot.
. the fbi will shut down, people responsible for tracking down loose nuclear weapons, the court system closes its doors. the faa off line, parks closed, food safety inspections, they stop, nobody gets tax refunds or fixes your roads. it is bad, second, meanwhile, too, the financial markets will go into complete chaos, u.s. government debt is after all the safest investment in the world, so it is used as the benchmark for all other types of debt. what that means, when you buy a mortgage the government looks at what it pays to borrow and begins your estimate there. if we spike the treasury rate because nobody trusts our government anymore that spikes credit card rates and mortgage rates. not to mention all manner of trillions and trillions of dollars of weird financial derivatives that are also bench marked to treasuries. the damage to the economy on that would be unbelievable. and it would occur at every level from individuals looking for a loan to get a house to hedge funders trying to play the markets. so it would be like 2008 all over again, and if we breach the ceiling for long, may
declared incompetent that shouldn't be shared with the fbi runs the background checks. >> bill: get him into trouble if he then says you can't have this particular gun or you can't have more than a clip with more than 10 bullets then is he going to get into trouble. if he just keeps it in the general sense, there will be a its little bit of outcry. on the fiscal business you know it's a horse trading proposition that the republican party wants smaller government and cut back spending isn't going to give you the authority to raise the debt ceiling unless you give us something back which means you cut entitlements a little bit or you do this, that, and the other thing. what do you think is likely to happen there? >> well, that is really an unprecedented situation. you know, we have had the debt ceiling raised over 70 times in the last 50 years. congress has always dutifully done its job and raised the debt ceiling under divided congresses and divide government. democrats and congress raised the debt ceiling 12 times for president reagan upon his request. what's unprecedentside that we hav
and affiliated police association of new york, fbi and new york state certified police firearms instructor, and spent 23 years in law enforcement on the city, federal and county level. and i can tell you that there's case law that came out in december of2011, judge solomon in new york supreme court, new york county, ruled in the new york times versus n.y.p.d. in article foia action that active and retired law enforcement officers, not the just n.y.p.d. and active and retired government employees must be redacted from the list that the n.y.p.d. turned over to the new york times in their foia action, that speaks volumes towards case law and may work towards the pending legislation in the assembly and senate which in the justification clearly says that the exposure of this information does the record holder, their families and the public at large a great disservice and puts them at risk. >> let me dove-tail off this. yeah, you can clap. [applause] >> you know, you're a lawyer, you argue for a living and you're obviously very good at your job, you've been doing it for a long time. sometimes t
you say drug use. those statistics are not kept by the fbi or by our own attorney general's office. >> you can't do it because you know you do. let's get to the -- >> -- no, wait a minute. i have worked on this whole issue with crystal meth in hawaii. and i will tell you the one thick that we have always recognized and we have always done is we have addressed it and we know where to start. that's when we have been successful. >> bill: mrs. congresswoman you are a good woman. you know you have a problem, which is why you are spending your time on it it now, i have got to get to jessica's law. are you kidding me? two year mandatory for child rape? 45 states have some kind of jessica's law which means that child rapist are given 15 to life if they commit that crime. hawaii won't even consider it. come on. have you got to get behind that. >> i will tell you, i will get behind it it. >> we are talking about a liberal hawaii. a liberal hawaii. >> we care about our elders. we care about those who need help. >> bill: conservative people care about their elders too. >> we have a very strong
of the fbi has all the information so people can't buy guns that shouldn't have guns. >> reporter: the vice president laid out some of the ideas emerging from his task force thursday, but he did not mention a new assault weapons ban, stirringing speculation the white house is dropping the proposal. but the white house says that's not so. an administration spokesman told cnn avoiding this issue just because it's been politically difficult in the past is not an option. that's despite what will be fierce opposition from the nation's top gun lobby, the national rifle association. >> i do not think that there's going to be a ban on so-called assault weapons passed by the congress. >> reporter: the nra can simply point to what happened in 1994 when president bill clinton signed the last assault weapons ban into law. democrats lost control of both how els of congress to republicans. >> he's become the only republican candidate in indiana with an f rating from the nra. >> reporter: last year the nra proved it was willing to go after the gop as well, running this tv ad against former indiana senator
just look at the fbi statistics, although we have horrific events that occur with these guns sometimes, mostly it is pistols and handguns that are involved statistically in the crimes. if you are going to attack the murders in this country, you would attack those other guns. i'm wondering why you think it is that they'd like to go after the assault weapons at this time. >> i think lz was exactly right. there is three different conversations going on and i think they have to turn it into one big comprehensive approach. if it's only framed as an assault weapons ban, it will have a very difficult time going through congress. but, yes, you know, the president is going to have to spend the capital. he has it and he's going to have to spend it. i'm sure vice president biden, who is now pregnant with this, this is his baby, and in case we haven't noticed, he's already running for president, is going to want something done. and the problem, drew, is the issue is not going away. as cnn was covering the meetings of the vice president on the issue, they had to break away because there was yet ano
rights. at the same time, the fbi reported that 2.78 million firearm background checks were conducted in december. that's the highest monthly figure since routine background checks were required way back in 1998. so let's talk about the opposition. is there any indication of softening there, particularly in congress where obviously these bills would have to be passed? >> well, in the immediate aftermath of the shooting, we saw some key moderate democratic lawmakers like joe manchin come out and say he was open to this conversation. he was open to having a debate about gun control, considering some of these measures. it's unclear whether that's going to be dissipate at all now as we've had more time elapse since the shooting and that emotional momentum may have slowed a little bit. we also see the nra. they're very powerful. still powerful. and they have a lot of allies in congress, not just among the republicans, but also with some democrats. the new senator from north dakota who was out over the weekend certainly doesn't seem open to a lot of these proposals. so it's going to be a le
released by the fbi, december saw the most background checks for gun sales since the agency's current system was in place in 1988. overall gun checks surged by 19% in 2012 from the previous year. potential gun buyers have been flocking to gun shows in record numbers all across the country since the shooting in newtown, connecticut, possibly worried about new restrictions in the coming months. >> we know that there's going to be some new laws. so, i kind of put it off and put it off until now. now, you know, we went through and came down here to get what we wanted before everything is illegal. bill: gun shows on the whole facing controversy. recent shows in the northeast were canceled following the newtown shooting, also angering gun advocates. martha: let's go back to d.c. now and the battle over taxes and spending and the nation's crushing debt. top democrats are now signaling they want to go back and get more of your money in the debt ceiling debate that is coming, despite the fiscal cliff deal that saw taxes go up 77% of americans. nancy pelosi says it is not enough money really th
-- we don't track gun sales in america. we just track the fbi background checks, kind of a proxy for what sales are. walmart also wanting it to be known that after they decided to meet with the vice president's task force, they didn't meet with the vice president. instead, eric holder, who you see on the screen there, and after their change of calendar to meet with the vice president, the vice president didn't actually meet with them. it was eric holder, and walmart wanting to get on the record that they were not pleased about that change. we gave them such a kind of hard time. >> hard time? >> about not coming to the meetings and they met with the attorney general. seventh in line, and the vice president first in line. i guess it's a pecking order. >> it's not like he's an intern. >> quite frankly, some say the reason the retailers were working with the attorney general, legal issues, background checks, restrictions on ammo, waiting periods, the like. that drama continues. a gun violence group planning next week a big protest at a walmart in connecticut. they would like walmart
, that is from the f.b.i. the first numbers are from the f.b.i. that show that violent crime rate is down 49%. murder rate -- so it takes into account the population growth. the second one is from the department of justice that shows the number of firearms held by american citizens has gone up almost 100%. as more guns are entering our society, the violent crime rates are going down. if you want a pro- advocate full screen, keep playing that one. >>steve: because there are so many people worried that the government is coming after their guns, the n.r.a. announced yesterday their paid membership has gone up 100,000 in the last 18 days. >>alisyn: we'll have more in the rest of the show. we want to get to the other top story. the flu. the c.d.c. will be releasing new numbers on the flu outbreak. 48 states are reporting a wide number of outbreaks. this comes with new concerns about vaccine shortages. >> people are scrambling all across the country, including here in d.c., to find the flu vaccine, like much of the country, the level of flu cases are unusually high. some doctors and pharmacies tel
